ABOUT

This is a special year for the Precision Health Meeting as we celebrate our 5th Anniversary and continue to focus on technologies, implementation, and major research breakthroughs.

Over the last several years, this meeting has highlighted the most provocative discoveries and major initiatives in genomic medicine from leaders of national healthcare systems, genomics institutes, international biobank initiatives, transformative diagnostic approaches, and hospital-based implementation and reimbursement. Continuing the historical focus of AGBT on technologies and public-private partnerships, the Precision Health Meeting highlights innovative technologies and their impact in clinical diagnostics and therapeutic development, as well as the evolving view of genotype-phenotype interpretation from rare variants to polygenic risk scores.

This event is for leading genomic researchers, healthcare professionals, and healthcare industry stakeholders. We bring together practitioners and innovators at the interface of genomics, medicine, and health to usher in a new era of precision medicine. Our aim is to pass the torch from pioneering researchers and developers of genome technologies to first movers in healthcare who are establishing standards of care and cutting-edge applications for genome technology in everyday clinical practice.

Testimonials

This was the best conference I have ever attended. The talks were stellar and I really enjoyed the small size relative to the larger meetings I typically attend…it was more personalized and meaningful.

2019 AGBT Precision Health Attendee

The caliber of talks was unrelenting…nothing short of stellar!

2019 AGBT Precision Health Attendee

I enjoyed learning how the rest of the field is thinking about genomic testing (i.e. combining WGS and RNAseq) The scientific content was excellent and I made a lot of new connections. 

2019 AGBT Precision Health Attendee

Very distinguished series of speakers from diverse clinical fields and perspectives with common genomic thread. Best collection of talks I’ve seen at a conference lately.
